      Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf, 1979. Band Bravo - Leser Pop - Musik zum Tanzen bubble - gum music Big Wam Bum Poppa Joe Co Co disco fox hits Teenage Rampage Ballroom Blitz Block Buster Fox on the run top hit Love is like Oxygen Brian Connolly The New Sweet Mick Tucker Steve Priest Andy Scott Bubi Heilemann Sweet waren eine Band, wie die Bravo - Leser sie liebten: S??e Bubis mit langen, gepflegten Haaren. Irre Kost?me. Jungs zum Knuddeln. Bunt, schrill, poppig. Gute Pop - Musik zum Tanzen. Synopsis: The Sweet started out with very typical basic fare - the "bubble - gum music" of the early 70s. Their songs "Big Wam Bum", "Poppa Joe" and "Co Co" became solid disco fox hits. However, these boys also managed to net the rock fans when they turned around on their style with songs such as "Teenage Rampage", "Ballroom Blitz", "Block Buster", "Fox on the run" and their top hit "Love is like Oxygen". Up to this day these are the essence of The Sweet for a great many people. Brian Connolly left the band in 1979 to start another band: The New Sweet. He died of a heart attack in 1997. The other three kept the project going for a long time. However, Mick Tucker died of leukemia in 2002. Steve Priest lives in the US, his musical output seems limited to his private needs. Only Andy Scott is still on the road, he put a new band together still called The Sweet, and he wrote a beautiful word of greeting for this volume. This is by far the largest volume ever published on The Sweet, illustrated and produced with lavish attention to detail, in a large format and in color throughout with just a few exceptions. It contains numerous photographs that have never been published before - a delight for every true fan! Bubi Heilemann provides in - depth information of his time with the band and the photo sessions.

      Alinari-- Stamperia Valdonega-Mardesteig, Firenze, 1979 - Opera diretta da Ulrich Middeldorf. Introduction by John Shearman. "La più grande raccolta al mondo di disegni italiani dal XV al XVIII secolo stampati con la raffinata tecnica ottocentesca della "collotipia", in una prestigiosa opera unica nella storia dell'arte. 400 Maestri Italiani suddivisi per scuole: edizione unica, irripetibile, di 325 esemplari. 28 volumi più 1 di indici che contengono complessivamente oltre 1200 disegni stampati con la più alta fedeltà raggiungibile in un vero fac-simile e incollati su un prezioso cartoncino uso mano con timbro a secco della Stamperia d'Arte Alinari. L'opera è stata realizzata sotto la direzione di un Comitato Scientifico internazionale di altissimo livello. I disegni in gran parte inediti, provengono dagli 80 più importanti Musei e Gallerie del mondo. La direzione fu affidata al prof. Urlich Middeldorf, direttore dell'Istituto d'Arte di Chicago e del Kunsthistorisches Institut di Firenze e di un Comitato Consultivo Internazionale, formato dai più validi studiosi e dai maggiori specialisti internazionali nel campo del disegno cui si affidò la completa responsabilità della definizione del piano dell'opera e della scelta dei collaboratori. La "Biblioteca di Disegni" è stata articolata in 28 volumi più un volume di indici e raccoglie oltre 1.200 disegni di Grandi Maestri. I disegni sono stati riprodotti nel formato identico all'originale, con la tecnica ottocentesca della collotipia, processo completamente artigianale ancora oggi usato nello stabilimento Alinari. La collotipia è un processo fotomeccanico che permette di ottenere immagini prive di retino, assolutamente aderenti quindi al negativo fotografico ed all'originale. I disegni stampati in collotipia sono un "unicum" irripetibile." cm.37x52,5, volume di pp.44 di commento e 40 tavole contenute La Biblioteca di Disegni. 20.

        Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes

      South Bend, Indiana: Regnery/Gateway, Inc., 1979. - One of Twenty Specially Bound CopiesSigned by Philip Reed and With a Signed Original Wood Engraving from His Original EditionREED, Philip, designer and illustrator. Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes. Wood Engravings by Philip Reed. South Bend, Indiana: Regnery/Gateway, Inc., 1979. Deluxe 'Limited Leather Edition'. One of twenty specially bound copies (this one being #9) signed by Philip Reed. Together with a colored 'proof' wood engraving from the original edition of 1963, of Simple Simon and the Pieman (sheet size 11 x 8 1/2 inches; 279 x 215 mm.) signed by Philip Reed, loosely laid-in.Small folio (10 11/16 x 7 5/8 inches; 271 x 194 mm.). [2, blank], [vi], 57, [3, blank] pp. Seventy wonderful colored wood engravings (on fifty-five pages). Bound by Monastery Hill-Chicago, stamp-signed in gilt on rear turn-in. Full black morocco, covers ruled in gilt, upper cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine with two raised bands, ruled and lettered in gilt, cream watered silk liners and end-leaves, all edges gilt. Housed in the original matching black leatherette slipcase. A very fine copy.The generic title 'Mother Goose' suggests a few nursery rhyme gems tucked away within. Short stories with thinly veiled morals and violent themes. In just the first few pages: children are whipped soundly and sent to bed, an old man is thrown down the stairs, a pussy cat is drowned, a mouse is bitten in two, a pig is shot with an arrow and children are asked to remember the Fifth of November.Gunpowder treason and plot;I see no reasonWhy gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot.Guy Fawkes included, this is a great selection of rhymes. Sometimes collections like this include so many ditties that the book ends up being an encyclopedia that you never want to pick up because of the sheer volume. However, this is a sensible collection, not too long and not too short with enough old favorites and undiscovered treats to keep everyone happy. Philip Reed's colored wood engravings show our much-loved characters with cherub, pinched faces and the animals full of personality."Philip Reed (1908-1989) spent his youth in Park Ridge, Illinois and later studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Chicago. At the Art Institute he studied the works of such illustrators as Howard Pyle and Randolph Caldecott who would later influence his own work. In 1930, he established his first printing company, the Broadside Press, and over the next decades Philip Reed gained a reputation using "fine quality work". Most of "his work has been engraved" and Philip Reed worked using "a great deal of color". Philip Reed designed and illustrated many books for children and critics praised his "detailed color wood prints." In 1958, he illustrated a new edition of James Thurber's classic Many Moons and in 1963 published Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes which received many awards and honors. His work has been displayed at the Library of Congress in Washington, the Victoria and Albert Museums in London and other institutions. Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes was the Caldecott Honor winner in 1964.

        Gaia: A New Look At Life on Earth.

      Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1979. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated by James Lovelock on the title page. Laid in is a ticket to the lecture given by the author. Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket. The Gaia Hypothesis was first formulated during the 1960s as a result of Lovelock?swork for NASA concerned with detecting life on Mars,the hypothesis proposes that living and non-living parts of the Earth form a complex interacting system that can be thought of as a single organism. Named after the Greek goddess Gaia at the suggestion of novelist William Golding, the hypothesis postulates that the biosphere has a regulatory effect on the Earth's environment that acts to sustain life. Written for the non-scientist, Gaia is a journey through time and space in search of evidence with which to support a new and radically different model of our planet. In contrast to conventional belief that living matter is passive in the face of threats to its existence, the book explores the hypothesis that the earth's living matter-air, ocean, and land surfaces-forms a complex system that has the capacity to keep the Earth a fit place for life. "This may turn out to be one of the epochal insights of the 20th century"(CoEvolution Quarterly).

        Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes

      1979. One of Twenty Specially Bound CopiesSigned by Philip Reed and With a Signed Original Wood Engraving from His Original EditionREED, Philip, designer and illustrator. Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes. Wood Engravings by Philip Reed. South Bend, Indiana: Regnery/Gateway, Inc., 1979. Deluxe 'Limited Leather Edition'. One of twenty specially bound copies (this one being #9) signed by Philip Reed. Together with a colored 'proof' wood engraving from the original edition of 1963, of Simple Simon and the Pieman (sheet size 11 x 8 1/2 inches; 279 x 215 mm.) signed by Philip Reed, loosely laid-in.Small folio (10 11/16 x 7 5/8 inches; 271 x 194 mm.). [2, blank], [vi], 57, [3, blank] pp. Seventy wonderful colored wood engravings (on fifty-five pages). Bound by Monastery Hill-Chicago, stamp-signed in gilt on rear turn-in. Full black morocco, covers ruled in gilt, upper cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine with two raised bands, ruled and lettered in gilt, cream watered silk liners and end-leaves, all edges gilt. Housed in the original matching black leatherette slipcase. A very fine copy.The generic title 'Mother Goose' suggests a few nursery rhyme gems tucked away within. Short stories with thinly veiled morals and violent themes. In just the first few pages: children are whipped soundly and sent to bed, an old man is thrown down the stairs, a pussy cat is drowned, a mouse is bitten in two, a pig is shot with an arrow and children are asked to remember the Fifth of November.Gunpowder treason and plot;I see no reasonWhy gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot.Guy Fawkes included, this is a great selection of rhymes. Sometimes collections like this include so many ditties that the book ends up being an encyclopedia that you never want to pick up because of the sheer volume. However, this is a sensible collection, not too long and not too short with enough old favorites and undiscovered treats to keep everyone happy. Philip Reed's colored wood engravings show our much-loved characters with cherub, pinched faces and the animals full of personality."Philip Reed (1908-1989) spent his youth in Park Ridge, Illinois and later studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Chicago. At the Art Institute he studied the works of such illustrators as Howard Pyle and Randolph Caldecott who would later influence his own work. In 1930, he established his first printing company, the Broadside Press, and over the next decades Philip Reed gained a reputation using "fine quality work". Most of "his work has been engraved" and Philip Reed worked using "a great deal of color". Philip Reed designed and illustrated many books for children and critics praised his "detailed color wood prints." In 1958, he illustrated a new edition of James Thurber's classic Many Moons and in 1963 published Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes which received many awards and honors. His work has been displayed at the Library of Congress in Washington, the Victoria and Albert Museums in London and other institutions. Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes was the Caldecott Honor winner in 1964.

        Aylesbury Friars 1979-1984

      Self Published ca 1979-1984, Aylesbury - Comprising 18 x flyers (20.5 x 33 cm) mimeographed on mixed paperstocks with Friars editorial and newsletter printed to verso, 5 x flyers (towards the end of the period) are Litho printed on white stock, 1 x Friars 10 years foldout listing every gig from 1969-1979, 2 x membership cards- one c.a. 1971, and the other 1979, and finally, flyer for Paul Weller Friars tribute in 2010. More images available on request. Friars- due to it's proximity to London rose to prominence as one of the key venues in th UK in the seventies and eighties, The Pretty Things in 69, to Bowie in 72 (his only UK gig that year), to Roxy Music, Genesis, Queen, Cockney Rebel, Motorhead, Fairport Convenion and so on, until the punk and new wave explosion of the late 70s where Friars hosted everybody from The Clash to The Ramones, Blondie, Gang of Four, The Buzzcocks, The Adverts, Sham, The Cramps, Ian Dury, Siouxie, The Slits and many more. Looking back at their listings it's a who's who of alternative music, which is due to the tastes and talents of husband and wife team David and Budget Stopps, who assisted by a team of enthusiasts ran everything Friars related from a spare room in their house. The very distinct flyers and posters were designed by Bridget Stopps, continuing the work of Kris Needs who it seems wrote the texts on the back (he was also editor of Zig Zag). Budget cut the stencils at home, with David making the screens for the posters and the flyers were printed on an old mimeograph machine which they inherited from the local newspaper in the mid seventies. The texts to the rear really give a feel to the late 70s music scene. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Jailbird

      New York: Delacorte Press, 1979. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Kurt Vonnegut with self-portrait caricature on title page. Light rubbing and wear, some light speckling to the bottom edge, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jailbird takes us into a fractured and comic, pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and misdemeanors in government and in the heart. This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F. Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to the penitentiary as Watergate's least known co-conspirator. But the humor turns dark when Vonnegut shines his spotlight on the cold hearts and calculated greed of the mighty, giving a razor-sharp edge to an unforgettable portait of power and politics in our times. "A gem. . . a mature, imaginative novel-possibly the best he has written. . . Jailbird is a guided tour de force of America. Take it" (Playboy).
